Tours are personalized, so you can see the halls that best fit your housing needs. We typically show one, two, or three halls during the tour so you can see the different styles of housing options offered at LSU.



All housing tours begin at Grace King Hall. 

We recommend arriving to Grace King hall 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour to check-in and plan your housing tour.

What will I see on the tour?

If there are specific halls you know are interested in touring, please let the tour guides know when you arrive to check in. Not sure what you want to see? That's ok! The student tour guides will talk to you about your interests and will develop a tour that fits your housing needs.

East side tours could include the following options:
Annie Boyd Hall, Acadian Hall, Blake Hall, Highland Hall, Laville Honors Housing, Herget Hall, and Miller Hall.

West side tours could include the following options:
Broussard Hall, Cypress Hall, Kirby Smith Hall, Pentagon Community, and the Residential College Complex.

Due to time restrictions, you will only be able to choose halls on one side of campus to see during the tour. If you would like to see halls on both the east and west side, you will need to schedule two tours.
